Hello, I'm Aidan Bell.
After many years as an airline pilot I’ve now come down to earth and I’m getting great enjoyment from meeting people on holiday, and helping them to get the very best out of their time here.
Scotland is my country, and I know it pretty much inside out. I want you to have the best possible experience on your special trip, so I took some time out to study for the coveted Blue Badge guiding qualification.
That means I’m able to tailor every tour to be exactly what you want it to be, so that you can see what you want to see. But let me share our stories and our culture, let me take you off the beaten track to find the unexpected - the sights and places you never knew existed.
That’s what being a Scottish Blue Badge Guide means.
And this is your holiday - let me help you make it unforgettable.

What other people have said...
The tour was great and Aidan, our guide, was very knowledgeable. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of Glen Garioch and Crathes Castle. The lunch at the castle was lovely. Everyone had wonderful time. (E.K., Bermuda)
Driving with our tour guide, Aidan Bell, gave us a fun, informative, and "safe" way to explore Scotland, without having to drive ourselves! My family has such wonderful memories thanks to Aidan's inside knowledge of this beautiful land - each stop along the way made us feel like VIP's as we enjoyed our private tours - we didn't feel like tourists, but more like Explorer's as we learned so many fascinating and fun facts about agriculture, landscapes, history, castles, Scottish society, and of course Whiskey! We also enjoyed having Aidan take us on the journey to Loch Ness, through Elgin and Inverness - he made, what was a very long day, a very enjoyable one! (RM, USA)
Our party of 6 had a great tour with Aidan Bell. His insight, knowledge and gentle humor made the day fun. It was obvious, he had given considerable thought to the day's plans and we saw more than we had hoped but never felt rushed. I highly recommend this tour and, especially, Aidan as the guide. (LAMcC, USA)
We were 10 people from Iceland on this trip. We had a wonderful day visiting Aden Country Park, Fyvie Castle and Glen Garioch whisky distillery. Both our guide and driver were in a great mood and even the weather was good. The guide was very professional with a lot of knowledge of the country and landscape we saw and best of all he had a great sense of humor. We were all very pleased with the trip… (JH, Iceland)
